High impact information on Cks85A

  • We also find that a second closely related Cks gene, Cks85A, plays a distinct, non-overlapping role in Drosophila, and the two genes cannot functionally replace each other [1].
  • We showed that the second cks gene cks85A, in contrast, has an important role in mitosis [2].
